I liked them better than Krystal but they always came across to me as really dumb.

I want Hogan back. He was a good host. He knew a lot about a lot of sports. He knew a lot about jr hockey too, so was always good around the draft.

I hope they bring Gord Stellick back in the mornings. Don Landry was brutal. but Gordy. with maybe Brady or a combination of different people throughout the week would be good.

Brady's repeated references to the city of Detroit like some unsophisticated hick who can only relate his entire world view to the only thing he has known will grow tiresome.

Are you kidding me? Bob is the only host of any of these shows who actually says what he's thinking and doesn't care if he gets canned. When I turn on PTS every evening and I see that he isn't hosting, I instantly turn it off.

Is there a link where you can listen to McCowan's show with Krystal?

I agree that Bobcat says what he's thinking, but his show shouldnt be on a sports channel. Other then his guests talking sports there's pretty much none of it coming from McCown.

He spent Monday and Tuesday of this week discussing the chilli he made for the superbowl and the man admits to watching little if any sports.

Brady confirmed it this morning.

I actually really enjoy Brady. At least, he better than anybody else on the station.

He was on Wednesday I think.

Bob ripped him for an hour about how his morning show sucked, ironically enough.

Bobcat is good... He's not a fanboy, and makes no apologies for it. He knows his stuff - especially on the business side which I find interesting...

Anyways, wonder if the guys at the fan pay attention to these boards? A couple of days after a thread bump and AK gets the axe... Pls, Jeff Blair be next..

Brady and the other guy mentioned they read the hockey forums and that it was nice to comment anonymously. Feel free to PM me.

I'm glad they replaced Krystal, I will start listening to the fan again.

Agreed! Glad Krystal is gone.

Maybe I'm in the minority here... but I like Blair.

Also... Bob is great... screws up names sometimes and can be clueless about certain subjects... but has a great point of view and says what he is thinking.
Can't stand shannon on the other hand.... he thinks he's hilarious.

i feel the same way, I used to be a Big bobcat fan, but it seems like its just less and less about sports and more to do with business and sales of teams and other stuff.

It might be that I dont listen to the fan as much as I used to but now it feels like its never about Sports, I liked hogan, he was a sports guy

I have no prpblem with McCown talking about the business side of sports because it's a different angle than what anyone else gives. I do have a problem with him killing time, the chili talk, Brunt's lost luggage etc. is boring. Also, put it back to 4-7!

Same here. I love Stellick and don't mind Brady. Landry was horrible. His imitations really blew and he wasn't funny at all.

I never thought that I would say this but these past few weeks, Blair has been pretty good IMO.

Krystal not fired first of all.

From Krystal : I am totally not fired. I'm being looked after and will be re-assigned. In 2 weeks I will be in 1-3 pm. I can sleep!

Steve Simmons was wrong as usual.
